This morning, on January 6, 2017, heaven received a beautiful young angel. Shelby Sudbrink was only seventeen and a senior at Templeton High School. She was a wonderful athlete, student, friend and daughter. She was beautiful inside and out and brought smiles to the faces of all those around her. She is survived by her father Michael, mother Emily, brother Colby and sisters Hailey and Kiley.
Details are still coming in but we know that she was in a terrible accident in Templeton late Friday morning, hit a tree and passed away on impact. Many friends and family joined the Sudbrinks at Sierra Vista Regional Center throughout the day to show their love and support. A parent should never have to bury their child and as much as we know and trust that Shelby is in a better place and has joined her Grandpa in heaven, we are all at a loss on how to move forward from here. Many are asking how they can help. Because the family had no emotional or financial preparation for the loss of Shelby, we are asking any who are willing and able to donate to help the family cover the funeral expenses. We and the entire Sudbrink family, would be so thankful for anything you can help with.
Please share these fundraising efforts with anyone who might be able help. Thank you for your time, donations and all of your prayers for the Sudbrink family during this incredibly difficult time. God Bless.
